Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Lunation 1047 / 2000

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1047 of Meeus index or 2000 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.56 days

Length of current 1047 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 32 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes longer than next lunation 1048 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠232.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠232.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠268.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 11 September 2084 at 14:43 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 September 2084 at 10:54 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 383 891 km

Moon is 383 891 km (238 539 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 391 km (251 277 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after its ascending node on 9 September 2084 at 23:14 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 September 2084 at 08:24 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 7 September 2084 at 23:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.423°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.317° in the next northern standstill on 21 September 2084 at 01:38 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 29 September 2084 at 21:16 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
